SUPRS Racers Take Aim at Bugers’ Smokehouse Prize at Turkey Shoot

November 10, 2017 – Goshen, IN…The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), racers are ready to bring out the big guns as they go on the hunt for a Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey at the 13th Annual Turkey Shoot Tuesday, November 14 at Memphis Motorsports Park.

This race is one of the most anticipated of the season because of the award for being the winner. The driver in victory lane after 40 laps receives a Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey, delivered to the doorstep in time to enjoy it with the family for Thanksgiving dinner. Many times in the races history though, the winner hasn’t had the pleasure of tasting that delicious bird, opting instead to donate it to others in need.

Turkey Shoot & Memphis

For the first three years of the Turkey Shoot it was held at the big 3/4 mile track and varied in length from 63-40 laps. John Davidson won the very first show in 2005 with Chris Meyers picking up one of his first SUPRS feature wins in 2006. Florida’s Kris Heveron was the winner in 2007 in a 17 car field.

After seven years at Tri-Park Speedway, (a fictional asphalt tri-oval in Tennessee), the race returned to its roots on the Mississippi River in 2015. In that race, Ray Sand, Jr. became the All-Time Turkey Shoot winner when he bagged his third Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey and donated it to fellow SUPRS racer Myles Maxon who had recently lost his grandmother. The race itself went green to checkered after an aborted start.

Last year, in another fast show, Joe Achzet ran away from the field to win the race that had just two cautions and took just over 14 minutes to run.

Warren, Becker Take Shot at Second

This year marks the sixth time the supermodifieds have visited Memphis and 2012 winner, Rob Warren, could join Ray Sand, Jr. and Dave Biro III in the multi-time winner club. If he does, it will make four SUPRS feature wins in a row and put him just one win away from having a bounty put on his head for the second time in three years. Carl Becker also has a shot at being a two-time Turkey Shoot winner with his first coming in 2014 at Tri-Park.

Set Your Alarms

Practice for the SUPRS 13th Annual Turkey Shoot at Memphis Motorsports Park begins at 8:15pm on November 14, 2017. The Fast 4 qualifiers take the first racing green flag of the night at 9:00pm in the six lap Turkey Trot. A Heat Race and the thrilling 40 lap feature on the big 3/4 mile Memphis macadam follows.

Burgers' Smokehouse turkey

Nom, Nom, Nom thanks to Burgers’ Smokehouse!

2008 saw a move to Tri-Park Speedway where the race stayed for the next six years. Ray Sand, Jr. won that first Tri-Park show then did it again the next year to become the first back-to-back winner.

In 2010-11 Dave Biro III duplicated Sand, Jr.’s feat before Rob Warren took home the Burgers’ Smokehouse Turkey in 2012 and donated it to injured supermodified racer Jeff Russell.

Joey Callahan not only claimed his first Turkey Shoot in 2013 at Tri-Park, but  also won his first ever SUPRS feature. Carl Becker was the winner in 2014 and both drivers capitalized on their starting position which is set by the six lap Turkey Trot qualifying race for the Elite 8 of Time Trials.

Last year the race moved back to Memphis and used the SUPRS non-wing rFactor mod. After the start was called back, the 2015 race went green to checkered with great battles throughout. Ray Sand, Jr. won his third Burgers’ Smokehouse turkey and donated to fellow SUPRS racer Myles Maxon who had recently lost his grandmother.

Practice for the SUPRS 12th Annual Turkey Shoot at Memphis Motorsports Park begins at 8:00pm. The Fast 4 qualifiers will take the first racing green flag of the night at 9:00pm with the six lap Turkey Trot to set the first two rows of the 40 lap main event.
